Tea for one and cupcake shortages....

Hi again! Wow I'm catching up on loads of posts here LOL! Brownie points all round yay!

I thought I'd share another little Teapot make to follow on from the last one - goes to show how versatile one image can be.  Again the teapot is from the Winston collection and I've cut the elements on my Cameo for speed but you can easily just hand cut them....

When I design the images for the collections because I'm a crafter too I always try to bear in mind how easy it would be to hand cut something out as I know that's what I'd want to do too! So generally you'll find all our images are pretty easy to cut by hand...
I cut two teapots and joined them together on the lid to make a simple tent card, and then decoupages all the other elements alongside it to make a little Tea for One...

Really wish I had a cupcake right now LOL!!
Don't forget you can also get the Winston collection as a full CD download HERE, it's a must have!

Be back soon!

Traditional dollies - DoCrafts Creativity Magazine Issue 52

Hello, I'm back again!

Hope the Christmas madness hasn't set in too much and you're getting time to craft a little! 

Just thought I'd share another make which appears in the current DoCrafts Creativity Magazine, issue 52 which you should still be able to grab - it's full of fab Christmas ideas so if you need some last minute inspiration make sure you get it!

This card I really hated when i made it but now I look with fresh eyes it's grown on me LOL. I'm not a big fan of Russian Dolls, mainly because the predominant colour I think of is that gaudy yellow and as y'all know....I'm not a yellow fan LOL!!
Yes it really does affect me that much!

I made this using some fab Russian Doll dies from XCut which are available now and you could use these all year round. I'd like to use these with a different colour scheme to see how different they could look but I made this specifically for Crimbo hence lots of red. If you love these Russian Dolls which I know lots of you do, this die is really terrific, you get lots of sizes and loads and loads of layers including all these faces and hair etc, you just need to cut lots of different layers to do this and get your markers out to colour the faces. You can get a copy of Issue 52 out now in your local stores or online at

Back soon!!
